Today I checked out the newly opened Loving Hut on 35th Ave & Union Hills in North Phoenix. The food was fantastic.
I ordered the NY "steak" combo, which came with a soup of the day (very tasty vegetable soup), rice (brown or white), some side veggies (cabbage, carrots, snap peas) and eggplant with tofu.
The eggplant with tofu was very good, the skin was not chewy at all like in many other eggplant dishes, it almost melted in my mouth and it was very tasty.
The actual NY "steak" was more like a crispy faux chicken, but it was still pretty good and came with a curry dipping sauce.
They also have a wide variety of other food menu items. The drink menu is also impressive. Many fresh made juices, smoothies, teas, etc. I opted for a not-so-exotic Jasmine iced tea and added some organic brown sugar found on the counter.
My entire meal including my drink was about $9 and left me with a full belly.
Overall I was very satisfied and I will be turning this into a regular lunch & dinner spot.
